trans-sierra trek

It's a long post. Last week I returned from a 10 day backpacking trip along the High Sierra Trail. We started at Crescent Meadow in Sequoia National Park and finished up 80 some miles to the east on top of Mt. Whitney and eventually Whitney Portal. The trip was full of incredible sights with a great group of guys. Several jokes were made about my Iron Man getup with my camera strapped to my chest the entire way.

Please comment, critique, throw rotten fruit, share, and enjoy!
